Remember that scene near the end of Twelve Monkeys – where Bruce Willis’ character learns that the Army of the 12 Monkeys has set all the animals free from the zoo and then sees four giraffes cantering along a Philadelphia freeway?
Well, that’s what it’s like on the streets of Victoria, BC today, as I spent my morning surprising the city with about 100 kilometres worth of Strava giraffe.
In a straight line from head to front hoof, she measures about 11 kilometres.
I had to use the “Garmin OFF/Garmin ON” trick for a few sections of the legs as the inventory of roads (especially straight ones) is rather meagre in that area. With the extra dashing about between OFF and ON points, this work of Strava art called for around 115 km of cycling.
As for the question on my Strava profile post – “What do giraffes have that no other animal has?”
The answer, of course, is baby giraffes.
